Secret Avengers has always been a strange book. What started out as Cap’s secret team of heroes brought together to stop threats before the start doing damage has now become SHIELD’s almost inappropriate use of the more covert members of the Avengers, technically to do the same thing. However, as goes almost anything that SHIELD touches, nothing ever works out correctly, and often times these covert members find themselves essentially on their own.
The irony of that statement is that Secret Avengers’ real strength comes from the title’s ability to pull together characters you wouldn’t normally see together. While Hawkeye, Spider-Woman and Black Widow are essentially joined at the hip, seeing the likes of Taskmaster, Beast or even Moon Knight in the various iterations of this title has always been fun.
This latest form of Secret Avengers takes that idea to it’s farthest reaches yet, bringing in a new member… MODOK?! While I doubt MODOK is getting his Avengers ID card anytime soon, just a glimpse at the covers below tells me I’m already on board just to see how this works out.
Take a look yourself, and see if come March 12th you’ll be joining up as well!
